I haven't been knitting for all that long (in fact, I learnt to knit when I was little by an old babysitter but never followed through with it until I was inspired by this friend to pick up the needles again early last year!!)
I'm sure it's been a love for a lot of you out there for a reaaaaally long time.
Lately online I have been noticing that more and more people are following the trend of hand-making gorgeous knits and it is becoming a "trendy" craze again!
(I think it's been trendy all along... but thats just me!! hehe)
Check out the popular Sportsgirl drive to get like-minded crafty peeps to start their love (or re-vive their love) of knitting by creating "Knitting groups" in major cities around Australia!!
Who would have thought that Sportsgirl would jump on the band wagon!

I noticed when I was in the city a week or so ago that Sportsgirl are also using the "Make-Do & Mend" slogan as part of their new Winter line. It seems that everybody is getting back to the "old" way of doing things - personally I LOVE this! I think more people should embrace handmade goods!!
Check it out at their site here where you can read more about their craft-kick!
Who do you think might jump on the knitting wagon next??
